about

Erik learned this Joni Mitchell song a few weeks before the Festival, as it captures the essence of what this Strawberry Festival - like Woodstock in 1969 - is really all about... "getting back to the Garden".

lyrics

I came upon a child of God
She was walking along the road
And I asked her tell me, "Where are you going?"
And this she told me...

She said, I'm going down to Yasgur's Farm,
Gonna join in a rock and roll band.
I’m gonna camp out on the land,
And get my soul free.

We are stardust.
We are golden.
And we've got to get ourselves back to the Garden.

Well can I walk along beside you?
I have come here to lose the smog,
And I feel like I’m a cog in something turning… round and round.

And maybe it’s just the time of the year,
Or maybe it's the time of man.
I don't know who I am,
But life is for learning.

We are stardust.
We are golden.
And we've got to get ourselves back to the Garden.

By the time we got to Woodstock,
We were half a million strong
And everywhere there was song and celebration.

And I dreamed I saw the bomber jet planes
Flying shotgun in the sky,
Turning into butterflies
Above our nation.

We are stardust.
We are golden.
And we've got to get ourselves back to the Garden.
